Where in Published Package can we put a flight plan PLN ?

I think the title says it all but to clarify .. I am including a Tutorial document with a product that requires the user to load a PLN (Flight Plan)
My question is this .. Where in the Build should this PLN be placed to allow the end user to load it easily into their aircraft from the MSFS World Map Screen ?

Hello @ModelMuncher

For now, the best way is to provide it as a COPY asset group in your package, and user will have to browse to your package to manually load the PLN file.
Not ideal obviously.

I'll raise the question with our designers and see how the system can be improved.

A similar topic about distribution through Marketplace has been brought as an idea here: Support .pln for mission and activity products - MSFS DevSupport (flightsimulator.com)

Don't hesitate to upvote and participate to the discussion.
